Update: Kroos and Alaba reveal the secrets of Real Madrid’s all-conquering side

Real Madrid are the Winners League, LaLiga Santander, and Supercopa de Espana champions for the next season, and their triumphs are not without surprises.
Real Madrid faced uncertainty in 2021/22 after a season without championships and the exits of two key personalities in the shape of Zinedine Zidane and Sergio Ramos. This was compounded by their inability to get Kylian Mbappe last summer.

But, nine months later, Real Madrid had finished the season by winning three of the four trophies they were competing for, including one of the most stunning Champions League triumphs in the club’s history.

Toni Kroos and David Alaba set out to explain why they were so successful.

Kroos told Sport 1: “Winning the Champions League is always difficult and frequently dramatic.”

“Perhaps this year was very spectacular, but I respect all five [Champions League] championships equally.” But, if I’m being honest, the Champions League was the one I least expected to win out of the five.”

The amazing Casemiro, Modric, and Kroos Kroos contributed to their mythology in Paris as one of the most dominant midfield combinations in history, together with Luka Modric and Casemiro. Their dominance also doesn’t look to be coming to an end anytime soon.

“I’m sorry, it’s not going to end,” Kroos joked. “No, truly, we want to continue to play at this level.”

Each of us is aware of what the others are capable of. We’re used to that, so it benefits us, especially in important games.

“This season, we had two men on the team, [Fede] Valverde and [Eduardo] Camavinga, who absolutely provided us a push, whether starting or coming off the bench.”

“This is critical, and it will become much more critical in the future. Because they will have to entirely replace us at some time.”

After a fantastic inaugural season at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Alaba supplied further reasons for Los Blancos’ success.

“There are a number of elements that have a role,” Alaba explained. “The mindset, the peak…. We are a squad with talented players, but we are also a team that believes in winning at any costs.

“We try all we can to win.” Real Madrid’s desire for success has been demonstrated several times in the past. And now it’s the same with me. I’m thrilled to be a part of this group.”

Ancelotti and Courtois
The Austrian did not forget about Thibaut Courtois’ efforts in goal this season, as he continued.

“What Thibaut has accomplished is just fantastic, and he has done it throughout the season,” Alaba said. “He has saved us on several occasions.”

The influence of coach Carlo Ancelotti on the team was something that both the German and the Austrian agreed on.
